Each SEO professional has his/her own strategy to get and keep clients on top of the market, whether he/she works independent or for a company.

However, it seems like some SEO Experts become more "successful" than others, maybe for their reputation as professional or simply the company they work for. That's why I have always asked myself about what really makes an SEO expert "successful":

Is it the top positions obtained?
Is it the top quality links obtained?
Is it the Google PR obtained?

There is no doubt these facts can tell us something about who has been working in SEO strategies, however the people who hire SEO may have another way to "Measure" the success such as a fast investment Return. What I try to say is that the person who hires SEO may not be interested in the work done and only wants to focus in determine how many contacts, sales or reservations his/her website has done during the SEO strategy.

In your case: How do you measure your SEO Success?


Have a nice day.

In my case, SEO Success Measurement is to create platform to attract visitors and convert them in to business but not running behind search engines rather make them run behind with your quality work.

SEO means optimizing on-page and then submitting links to other directories to attract more visitors with easily navigated pages.

But we should make web pages for users not for search engines.

I dont why we all forget, on-page optimization which is most required for any website.

Google always says Build website for users not Google.

Further adding to jennie's query?

Today we target for some xyz keyword which are searched most but after some time (next generation) people may change their keywords or terms or keyphrases. Then what is the use for targeting for particular keyword and ranking good. For example in US & UK, people using the term "TEXT MESSAGES" but in India they search for "BULK SMS".

SEO is not understood correctly because of few....

I say I have done a good job if I get a good income from the site. And the income, of course, depends on SERP. So I would probably go with SERP too.

I measure my success with a website called "Paypal". They have an on-line application with a number that tells me how successful I've been at any given time.
